If you have a social security card tucked away in your safe, great! If not, you can order a replacement card from the social security office.
You will not need to notarize your social security card before the apostille process.
Since your social security card is a federal document, you must contact the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C., to obtain the apostille.
If the receiving country is not a member of the Hague Convention of 1961, the social security card requires embassy authentication. The card must be presented to the country’s embassy.
